Mayplace Primary School collected 74,864 Active Kids vouchers from Sainsbury’s

Pupils at a Bexleyheath primary school have benefited from new baking equipment after collecting almost 75,000 vouchers from a supermarket.

Mayplace Primary School collected 74,864 Active Kids vouchers from Sainsbury’s in the Broadway shopping centre.

They invited staff from the supermarket to the school in Woodside Road to see how they were using their new equipment.

Teacher Claire Prisk said: “We have to thank the parents for their support in collecting all these vouchers.

“The children from the rainbow class, which is for pupils with autism and special educational needs, go to Sainsbury’s to buy the food they need and then come back and make it. This is brilliant for their interaction and language skills and having this equipment has enabled us to do this with the children each week.”

Sainsbury’s staff member Annie Wong said: “Often the schools collect the vouchers and that’s it, but it’s nice to have that feedback and see what they’ve actually done with them.”

Since it launched the scheme in 2005, Sainsbury’s has donated sports and cooking equipment worth more than £150 million to schools in the UK.

The aim of the scheme is to encourage children to enjoy eating well and taking exercise.
